Getting Fit: August

getting fit[3]

Among other things, August involved a week-long trip home for a multi-day wedding extravaganza. Which meant LOTS of eating. Pretty sure I ate leftover wedding cake as a meal, for several meals.

I’m not complaining, of course. Just confessing :) Maybe boasting, just a little. It was really good cake.

That being said, I took full advantage of being home and on a pseudo-vacation, and unless otherwise necessary, just ate and sat around. And drank lots of Coke, because my family doesn’t drink water.

When I came back, I was PMSing hardcore. So I waited until all that abated before doing my weight and measurement check-in. I don’t consider it cheating. Especially since – drumroll please – the numbers show I’ve lost more weight and more inches, even just since last month. (Yes, that’s “inches” plural.)

Yee-freaking-haw.

The biggest challenge for this month will be not pigging out too much while SoldierMan is TDY. I have never understood those wives who say, “Oh, I just forget to eat when I don’t have to cook for someone else.” HOW DO YOU FORGET TO EAT? HOW CAN A PERSON ACTUALLY HAVE CEREAL 2 MEALS A DAY FOR MORE THAN…A DAY? I have the exact opposite problem. It’s more along the lines of, “Spaghetti for breakfast? Don’t mind if I do!”

Also I have cake mix and Jiffy white fluffy icing mix in the pantry that I may or may not have been saving for this very trip. So we’ll see how that goes. (Who wants cupcakes?)

Maybe it’ll motivate me to take the baby walking more ;)

Things that went well:
- Stuck to good habits during most of the month, like drinking water and walking places instead of driving when possible
- Let loose and relaxed while I was home

Things to work on:
- Walk more
- Drink more water
- Don’t eat ALL THE FOOD
- Don’t eat out ALL THE TIME

How was your August?
